The FountainPenDiva, Old school geek chick and lover of teddy bears (thefountainpendiva) | 1210 comments This has been trending big all day, but the event actually begins tomorrow. I'm not big on the whole Twitter thing, but this is too important for me to just stand on the sidelines. We all know there's a huge lack of stories by/about PoC, GLBTQ and other marginalized groups, especially in the YA/children's markets. It's a situation many major news oulets have reported on. Now is the time to bring wider attention to the problem:

Thank you for sharing this FPD. I'll spread the word to my non-gr friends as well.

Me too. I just sent an email blast to the group, because I think it's important to share, and I'm afraid a lot of people will miss the opportunity to participate. I know I wouldn't have known anything about this if FPD didn't share.


The FountainPenDiva, Old school geek chick and lover of teddy bears (thefountainpendiva) | 1210 comments Thanks everyone! #WeNeedDiverseBooks was the top trender for most of the day. Maybe this will make New York pay more attention to a consumer base that is growing steadily diverse and wants to see themselves better reflected in and on books.
